Keeping Standards up-to-date


Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology and systems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued. Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselves they are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments which may have been published since the Standard was purchased. Detailed information about joint Australian/New Zealand Standards can be found by visiting the Standards Web Shop at www.saiglobal.com.au or Standards New Zealand web site at www.standards.co.nz and looking up the relevant Standard in the on-line catalogue. For more frequent listings or notification of revisions, amendments and withdrawals, Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand offer a number of update options. For information about these services, users should contact their respective national Standards organization. We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especially encourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or ambiguities. Please address your comments to the Chief Executive of either Standards Australia or Standards New Zealand at the address shown on the back cover.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR AS/NZS 2537.5.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand Committee PL-006, Polyolefin Pipe Systems to supersede in part, AS 25371994, Mechanical jointing fittings for use with crosslinked polyethylene (PE-X) pipe for hot and cold water applications. This Standard is an adoption with national modifications and has been reproduced from ISO 14531-3:2006, Plastics pipes and fittingsCrosslinked polyethylene (PE-X) pipe systems for the conveyance of gaseous fuelsMetric seriesSpecifications, Part 3: Fittings for mechanical jointing (including PE-X/metal transitions). The modifications and additional requirements are set out in Appendix ZZ. Appendix ZA has been included to specify requirements on means of demonstrating compliance with this Standard.

The objective of this Standard is to specify the general aspects of mechanical jointing fittings made for use with crosslinked polyethylene pipes in gaseous fuel applications. In this Standard, there is a partial pressure limitation for liquefied petroleum gas (LP Gas). The aim of this limitation is to prevent the formation of aliphatic hydrocarbon liquids under normal service conditions and subsequent deleterious effects on the long term performance of the pipe. At a partial pressure of 300 kPa absolute, the dewpoint for a typical propane LP Gas is below 0C. The designer of a cross-linked polyethylene reticulation system should be aware that if service temperatures lower than this are likely to occur or if LP Gas containing significant quantities of butane gases are to be reticulated, the partial pressure limitation must be revised to avoid condensation of hydrocarbon liquids.

As this Standard is reproduced from an International Standard, the following applies: (a) (b) (c) Its number does not appear on each page of text and its identity is shown only on the cover and title page. In the source text this part of ISO 14531 should read this part of AS/NZS 2537. A full point substitutes for a comma when referring to a decimal marker.

The terms normative and informative have been used in this Standard to define the application of the appendix to which they apply. A normative appendix is an integral part of a Standard, whereas an informative appendix is only for information and guidance. Statements expressed in normative terms in footnotes to tables are deemed to be requirements of this Standard.

Part 5:

Scope

This part of ISO 14531 specifies the physical properties and mechanical-performance requirements for fullend-load-resistant mechanical fittings for use in the connection of crosslinked polyethylene (PE-X) pipes conforming to ISO 14531-1 and in the construction of transition assemblies for joining PE-X pipes to metal pipes having plain spigot, screw thread, compression socket and flange terminations. In addition, it lays down dimensional requirements and specifies some general material properties (including chemical resistance) together with a classification scheme for PE-X fitting materials produced in the form of pipe. This part of ISO 14531, when used in conjunction with the other parts of ISO 14531, provides the basis for the design, manufacture and installation of PE-X piping systems (PE-X pipes, PE-X fusion fittings and mechanical fittings) for the supply of category D and category E hydrocarbon-based fuels (see ISO 13623) at a) b) c) maximum operating pressures (MOPs) up to and including 16 bar 1) and a maximum operating temperature of +60 C and a minimum operating temperature of 1) 2) 3) 50 C
35 C

20 C.

Conformity to this part of ISO 14531-3 of mechanical fittings produced in accordance with ISO 10838-1, ISO 10838-2 or ISO 10838-3 may be claimed subject to the satisfactory conclusion of the tests listed in 5.6 and an end-use restriction on operating temperatures to the temperature range 20 C to +40 C.
NOTE It is recognized that mechanical fittings conforming to ISO 10838-1, ISO 10838-2 or ISO 10838-3 are limited to a maximum operating temperature of 40 C. Provision is made in ISO 14531-4 for the use on a restricted-temperature basis of ISO 10838 fittings conforming to 5.6 in conjunction with PE-X pipes conforming to ISO 14531-1. The fitting manufacturer's technical file should also be consulted for relevant supporting information.

For installation purposes, this part of ISO 14531 provides for the jointing of mechanical fittings to PE-X pipes within the temperature range 5 C to +40 C.
